TOPANGA (CBSLA) — LA County Fire crews have put out a four acre brush fire that broke out near 1200 N Topanga Canyon Blvd in Topanga Canyon Saturday afternoon. There were no injuries or damage to buildings.
Crews were “mopping up” the fire Saturday evening and investigators were on the scene to determine the cause of the blaze, according to LA County Fire Captain Brian Jordan.READ MORE: Pasadena's Lucky Boy Burgers Sues Postmates Alleging Unfair Business Practices
Topanga Canyon Bouleveard, which had been closed to help fire crews get quickly to the fire, partially re-opened Saturday evening. One lane reopened with escorts from CHP.
“Our plan is to get Topanga Canyon open as soon as possible,” Jordan said. “Right now we’re setting up to open only one lane.”
LA County Fire Air Operations had deployed water-dropping helicopters to help fight the fire.
